Bernie Sanders has won Michigan by a margin of 50% to 48%. That may seem too close for bragging rights, until you take a look at what the polls predicted :

- The Real Clear Politics Average gave Clinton a 22-point edge over Sanders, 59% to 37%.

- Not a single one of 18 Michigan polls going back to 2014 had Bernie Sanders ahead.

- The last three polls had Clinton ahead by an average of 29 points.

The media is fond of writing off Bernie Sanders, but consider the fact that Bernie is racking up a number of impressive primary and caucus wins that seriously challenge the notion that Hillary Clinton is the candidate most capable of winning in November.

Perhaps his most impressive win is Michigan 50% to 48% in a large industrial state Hillary Clinton was favored to win by a landslide, but this is just the latest in a series of Bernie Sanders victories, particularly in Blue States, that suggest that voters far prefer the Vermont Senator to Hillary Clinton, the candidate the media likes to refer to as the "clear front runner."

- Sanders won Colorado 59% to 40%

- Sanders won Kansas 68% to 32%

- Sanders won Maine 64% to 36%

- Sanders won Minnesota 62% to 38%

- Sanders won Nebraska 57% to 43%

- Sanders won New Hampshire 60% to 38%

- Sanders won Oklahoma 52% to 42%
